Scale Analysis for Variety
Simply reformatting a couple variable names can provide a multitude of different visualizations for various indicators with the click of a button.
What You Will Learn
In this course, you will be taught the fundamentals of data science using Python by several of Berkeley's top urban, data, and social scientists. The workshop examines California housing and US census data and draws from proven research developed by the Center for Community Innovation, the Urban Displacement Project, and the D-Lab. We will empower participants with the fundamentals of data science, big data, and visualizations. You will learn tools to identify housing trends in your region and isolate important variables driving these trends which will then make your organization's planning processes more robust and transparent.

Data for Housing Workshop, Week One
190 Doe Library, Berkeley, CA 94720
Data Science Principles
Ask and answer the right questions to improve your analytics. Our workshop will bring you up to date on what urban scholars and practitioners are doing to make new breakthroughs in research.
Big data is not exclusive to the private sector. Use large volumes of data to automate processes and monitor progress on your projects.
Use mapping and other visualization packages to drive your findings home and engage the public more effectively.
Mapping is integral to planning. Before, we had to rely on high cost mapping software to build our spatial analysis. Now we can use open source software and code to produce maps at scale.
